|DLC||Deluxe Upgrade Pack (or Cities: Skylines Deluxe Edition)|
|Building Type||Unique Building|
|Milestone Required||Worthy Village|
To unlock the Brandenburg Gate unique building, you’ll need to do 2 things:
- Have 10,000 full lifespans lived in the game
- And reach the Worthy Village milestone (240-950 population, depending on the map)
Once these requirements are met, you’ll be able to build the Brandenburg Gate from the Landmarks tab of the Unique Buildings menu for ₡195,000.
Until then, hovering over its silhouette in the menu will show you your progress towards unlocking it.
Although the Worthy Village milestone unlocks the Landmark Unique Buildings tab, you will be much farther in the game by the time you unlock this building.
Note: You’ll need to have 10,000 citizens to have been born in your city and then grown old and died there. Each citizen has a “lifespan” of approximately 6 in-game years.
Tip #1: Avoid Getting Homes Abandoned
Since you want as many citizens as possible to live their whole lives in your city, you want to avoid the conditions that may cause them to pack up and leave.
Be attentive to any citizen complaints, and try to resolve their issues as quickly as possible.
These can include:
- Lack of power or water
- Contaminated water supply
- Ground and noise pollution
- Garbage piling up (inadequate garbage collection)
- Dead persons not picked up in a timely manner
- High crime rate
- Taxes too high
- Land value too low*
*This can happen if a residence has upgraded to a higher level, but for some reason the land value in the neighborhood drops (e.g., if a noisy or polluting building is built nearby) and is now lower than what that level needs.
Tip #2: Keep Your Citizens Healthy
Citizens dying prematurely because of illness won’t add to your progress, and will in fact slow you down.
You want your citizens to stay as healthy as possible and die of old age.
Here are a few ways to do that:
- Make sure their water is clean (keep any drain pipes downstream of water intakes, and any water towers away from polluted soil)
- Keep ground and noise pollution away from homes
- Provide sufficient healthcare access (clinics and hospitals) for any citizens who do get sick
There are also certain buildings from DLCs that provide a health bonus to citizens within their radius.
|Building||Build Cost||Unlocked At||DLC Required||Effect|
|Child Health Center||18,000||Boom Town||none||Health bonus to children and teens in the area; boosts birth rate|
|Community Pool||75,000||Busy Town||Green Cities||Health bonus to area|
|Eldercare||22,000||Boom Town||none||Health bonus to seniors in the area|
|Sauna||25,000||Big Town||Snowfall||Health and happiness bonus to area|
|Sports Hall and Gymnasium||120,000||Tiny Town||Green Cities||Health bonus to area|
|Yoga Garden||90,000||Small City||Green Cities||Health bonus to area|
Tip #3: Use the Child Health Center to Boost Birth Rate
Apart from the health bonus to children and teens in the neighborhood around it, the Child Health Center also provides a boost to birth rate within its radius.
Since you’ll want as many babies being born in your city as possible for this unlock, it won’t hurt to add a few child health centers near your residential zones.
Tip #4: Don’t Enable Random Disasters (Natural Disasters DLC)
Of course, you also want to make sure your citizens aren’t dying prematurely from disasters!
If you’re playing with the Natural Disasters DLC, make sure random disasters are turned off.
Also, be sure to have sufficient fire safety coverage, to prevent the loss of homes to fire.
